The NIH Big Data to Knowledge initiative (BD2K, announces the release of three new RFAs for training in biomedical big data science:
1) RFA-LM-16-002: BD2K Predoctoral Training in Biomedical Big Data Science (T32)
2) RFA-ES-16-002: BD2K Mentored Career Development Award in Biomedical Big Data Science (K01)
3) RFA-ES-16-003: BD2K Mentored Career Development Award in Biomedical Big Data Science for Intramural Investigators (K22)

All of these opportunities aim to train more researchers who will use Big Data technologies, methods, and tools.  Training is expected across three major scientific areas: (1) computer science or informatics, (2) statistics and mathematics, and (3) biomedical science.  In addition, the awardee/trainee will acquire depth in areas of specialty necessary for developing new methods, technologies, or tools.

The receipt deadline for applications is August 1, 2016 for K awards or July 25, 2016 for T awards. 

BD2K is a trans-NIH initiative that aims to support advances in data science, other quantitative sciences, policy, and training that are needed for the effective use of big data in biomedical research. Interested applicants are encouraged to join the BD2K listserv ( to receive the most up-to- date information about BD2K events and funding opportunities.
